Hamilton eases past below-par Fu

Hamilton on top - but it was not pretty
Anthony Hamilton secured a spot in the second round of the World Championship with a battling win over Marco Fu.

Hamilton went into the final session with a 6-1 lead but the Hong Kong player reduced that deficit by winning the eighth and ninth with a 107 break.

That should have been the catalyst for Fu's recovery, but Hamilton scrapped to take next four frames, with the 11th decided on a re-spotted black.

The Nottingham player will now play Ian McCulloch in the last 16.


Anthony Hamilton 10-3 Marco Fu:
104-4 (84) 62-42 80-0 (80) 80-34 57-56 47-52 78-30 13-57 1-107 (107) 65-51 72-65 49-48 60-8
